Am I Overpaying? - 10/30/11 07:57 PM
Am I Overpaying? Is the listing overpriced? What is the house worth? All questions, or variations of questions, most buyers ask when buying a house. They are valid questions with not easy or pat answer. The value of the home depends on your point of view. Webster defines "value" as "a fair return or equivalent in goods, services, or money for something exchanged" or "the monetary worth of something."

Will They Sell on Land Contract? - 10/05/11 04:30 PM
Will They Sell on Land Contract? Would YOU give title to a 6 figure asset to someone with your credit history?
